During Art lessons students are encouraged to develop their visual language and communicate their own ideas, feelings and meanings. To help facilitate this the Art department gives students opportunities to see other artists work and visit exhibitions.
Our aims in the Art department are to:
In Key Stage 3 we follow the national curriculum. We use a flexible approach to help give Key Stage 3 pupils the confidence in their own artwork and help them achieve well.
- Generate interest, motivation and engagement with Art & Design
- To develop self confidence in individual pupils
- To provide the grounding required to enter a GCSE qualification
In Key Stage 4 students are given the opportunity to study for the GCSE Art & Design (Short Course) qualification.
